You have got to give this a try!  I suffered from IBS and took meds for way too long!!  If I would have known about my cure sooner, I could have saved alot of money, and sick days!  6 months ago I met a chiropractor, and he changed my life.  Did you know that in your back are nerves that connect to all different parts of your body, including your stomach?  If you are out of alignment, pressure on these nerves can cause alot of pain and discomfort, symptoms the doctors call IBS.  After a few adjustments, I am pain (and med) free!!  I feel like a new women.  I urge everyone to give this a try, what have you got to lose?

Hi lolaann,
While I appreciate your enthusiasm... please try and limit your posts to avoid duplicate posts. I totally agree that chiropractor can benefit many of us in many ways however I would like to also stress to everyone that there is no known cure for IBS. There are different ways to manage and there are times that our bodies go into remission for sometimes unknown reasons however there is no cure documented in the medical field for IBS.

While I'm happy for you that you no longer have IBS it isn't the answer for everybody and for children, I would steer clear of a chiropractor. If any adult is considering chiropractic treatment, please read all the fine print and research before undergoing therapy as manipulating certain areas of the back/neck can result in permanent injury.

Long story short, I had been to one for chronic headaches and $500 into the treatment I developed a sore lower back and I had never had one before. My husband used to go every 2 weeks and 2 chiro's told him he would need to go forever (read $$$). So like anything, buyer beware!
Take care, Softy

This is lolaann.  Sorry if I offended people with my story.  I was only trying to offer help to anyone suffering from what I once had.  I still believe that my chiropractor works miracles, and if I can help just one person I will be happy.  Good luck to all those looking for answers, I hope you find them

Hi lolaann, I don't think that you offended anyone. We are always happy to hear success stories :) I am so very glad that this worked for you! Most of the members are so frustrated and have tried so many things and I'm sorry if any of the posts came across in the wrong way, I can assure you that none of the replys were meant that way or directed personally that way to you. I am so happy with the way the IBS forum members are and I can assure you everyone here is wonderful and we are a caring bunch. I hope you keep posting, if even just for inspiration for all of us. Take Care

I've heard alot of peeps with crohns or ulcertive colitis also try accupuncture with success as well...the spine is very involved with the function of the intestines.

Hello lolaann - I've just started going to a chiropractor (2nd one) to see if I can get some relief.   I had x-rays done and sure enough I have some disc compression and bone spurs in the area of the spine where the digestive nerves are.   I've worked pretty hard for the last 16 years and have done some damage to my spine, never mind IBS.   I went to another chiro 2 years ago and he was all over candida control.
 
It seems whatever I try that works only works for a little while and then has no effect.  But if I can just eliminate pain where I can I'll try anything.
 
Good luck to you (and me) with the chiro.

i went to an osteopath (sort of a bone massage, not quite a doctor...but a hands on aligment massage thing) but it was great, and she relieved a lot of pain when i had really bad days. i think a lot of it has to do with actual relaxation and stress management. but paying more attention to your body and the signals it sends you i believe encourages good health.

(just to let you know, i am more of a hippy when it comes to my health, of course meds are FANTASTIC, but i think that the body should be treated as a whole, not in parts...)
take care!
